J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (02.23.11)
Mystic powers,and crazy ideas.
2. Truly, I feel humbled by the sheer&naked stupidity of this !
tom ,   tel aviv   (02.23.11)
Lord may save us from such Sages! Or maybe, just maybe: He sends them to remind us to get rid of their influence over our daily life.. Which is it??
3. let them believe in something inexisting
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.23.11)
But that they don't try to impose their "beliefs" on SANE people . As more they bark in such a way , more SANE people distantiate themselve from their superstition . I pity them and those who share such ideas .
4. Those who think that a god is ruling the world
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.23.11)
are backwards underdevelopped fools . They still live in the dark middle ages , not in the 21st century . I pity them and those who believe those ideas of those "prominent" rabbis .
5. returning, that is
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (02.23.11)
6. So may Arab unrest continue full force speedily in our days
7. Oh please, don't get mystic on us
Cameron ,   USA   (02.23.11)
No more than rather strong indicators of what a bad fit the Islamic mindset & values are as we race into the digital 21st century. Affairs will only get more dangerous & screwy as the world changes ever faster, but Muslim doctrine and approach remain set and static.
8. We Jews Are As Cooky As Fundamentalist Muslims & Christians
Washington DC ,   Washington DC USA   (02.23.11)
Isn't it reassuring to realize that we Jews have amongst us religious cooks who are every bit as crazy as fundamentalist Muslims & Christians? Fundamentalist Christians say that natural disasters are to be blamed on gays. Fundamentalist Muslims claim that natural disasters are God's punishment against Jews. And Jewish fundamentalists have their own crackpot explanations, as described in the article. Maybe all of the non-fundamentalists on the planet should unite against the fundamentalist minority in all of the religions. Jewish fundamentalists in Israel (and their cowardly supporters who live in comfort in the US) are destroying any hope Israel has of reaching a reasonable compromise with its Palestinian neighbors.
9. @ CHARLES, #4: "underdevelopped "? WHO IS IGNORANT HERE?
10. 3 Charles, a big smile!
ORA ,   Jerusalem   (02.23.11)
I asked G-D a bike.But i know it doesn t work that way.So i stole a bike and asked G-D forgiveness. Happy?
11. Aharon Leib Steinman? Really?
Orly ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.23.11)
We are talking about a man who has made "rulings" regarding the Internet and its uses. Yet in a video of R' Amnon Yitzchak meeting with Steinman the latter's interlocutor struggles to explain to him how a performer can "manually hand out music" (Yitzchak was talking about handing out music CDs) and clearly has no understanding of what the "Internet" is, who has it, and what it is for. Is this really the guy you want to quote as the forebearer of *any* information?!
12. yes
fad egypt   (02.23.11)
true the messiah is coming soon jesus the christ what is happening now means that egypt and some african countries will be the enemies of israel and will enter a war against the antichrist in israel and russia ,iran turkey and china will invade israel to control it and destroy the anti christ but the messiah will come and defend israel and defeat the enemies of israel and show the jews from the four parts of the earth that he jesus is the messiah of them and then the kingdom of israel will be established over the whole world
13. To #8
Stan ,   Israel   (02.23.11)
You are SOOOOO Right
14.  i have 20/20 vision and I don't see your god.
jo   (02.23.11)
The stupid lithuanian gang has his own stupid answer to the upheaval of the stupid arab states. By the way, could someone give me the messiah's e.mail i have some important questions to ask. how come they are all prominent, are the others 'bums'?
15. 9 , corrections are welcome
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.23.11)
English is only my third tongue . And i don't need capitals to try to convince , only underdevelopped need them , but they are not the people who can give lessons to me .
16. To believe that what our senses..
ORA ,   Jerusalem   (02.23.11)
are not apt to detect,is inexisting... is nonsense. Our senses capacity has limits.Great Rabbis have faculties that enables them to foresee and prevent troubles.They love Jews,and want their wellbeing and healthy life. They do not impose anything,they recommand.Jews have free choice. CHOSE LIFE.
17. 11Orly
ORA ,   Jerusalem   (02.23.11)
Do not underestimate Rav Steinman. He is extremely smart.
18. Why all the negativity
Abe Brandon ,   Bet Shemesh   (02.23.11)
The fact is that the Mideast is going Crazy. There is A G-d that runs the world and you have to be a fool not to think that. And basically the message that G-d is sending is "Shape up or Ship out". It has happened before as we all know so well, and it can happen again.
19. Be Prepared
Ken ,   Danville, USA   (02.24.11)
This is going to be trouble on a scale beyond what the world has ever seen, or will see again. If these days of trouble were left to run their course, nobody would make it. But on account of God's chosen people, the trouble will be cut short.
20. God is NOT causing.
Maansingh ,   The Netherlands   (02.24.11)
Rabbi Lefkowitz said that he “is certain that God is causing the turmoil”. God is NOT causing the turmoil in the world. The human beings are causing the turmoil on planet Earth. It is not fair to accuse God for the turmoil. “The one who does not see that God is running the world, Lefkowitz concluded, is not evil, but a fool.” That is correct.
21. Don't be decieved
josh ,   mal   (02.24.11)
No! The false messiah will come first then the Jews will go through great suffering. Jesus the real messiah will come and save the world at the very end.
22. good grief ...this is the 21st century
even the Romans in the time when Jesus was still alive expressed amazement that anybody in the ''modern world'' would believe the superstitious mumbo jumbo put about by such sects as Christians etc. I wonder if the world would be now be a much better place if the Roman Empire had not been devastated by barbarians
23. I am here already. Where's the red carpet.
Michael ,   California, USA   (02.24.11)
24. Unrest
Ralph ,   Caesarea   (02.24.11)
Do you think the unrest will spread to Orthodox community ?
25. The Messiah
RC ,   USA   (02.24.11)
To those who are brash in denying the existence of The Messiah I can only point to the following: 2Corinthians chapter 4 verse 4, John chapter 12 verse 40, Romans 11:7, 2Corinthians 3:14, Unfortunately there are many that look but cannot see, and sadly they cannot even perceive their blindness.
26. Maschiach tarries
Cuinn ,   USA   (02.24.11)
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. -Psalm 14:1
27. Human arogance is not an option
Psalms 83 ,   Selah   (02.24.11)
yes we can shake our fist at the creator with our current sliver of knowledge of the created universe...but in the end that creator will be the judge of the quality and validity of the knowledge we humans proclaim... ======== in terms of the current remake of islamic goverments - I have the feeling events listed in Psalms 83 and ezekiel 36 thru 39 is now in full swing. Israel trust in G-d will be a must as virtualy all nations will be arrayed against it.
28. M424.COM
29. Mashiach is coming?
Eliyahu Konn ,   Powell, OH, USA   (02.24.11)
Already came at the appointed time, Daniel 9:26. Taught/revealed Torah, not Xtianity. Devarim 18:15 Scion of David with the only existing genealogy to David. NHM 1:1 - 1:16, The Netzarim Hebrew Mattityahu. Was defamed for the past almost two millennia but now the filthy garments have been taken off. Zekharya 3:3. If it isn't Ribi Yehoshua there won't be one. He's back!
30. 23 Michael. For a red Herring?
ORA ,   Jerusalem   (02.24.11)
